This tour will take us all over the Panchoy Valley around Antigua. We start off  going to San Juan del Obispo. It is one of the highest villages around Antigua located on the foothills of the Agua Volcano.. Here we will visit a local chocolate factory named “Chocolate Antigua” where they will show us the chocolate making process as well as get to taste the finished product.  During this stop we will also visit a local wine shop which sells wines made out of a local fruit  named “Nispero.”  After visiting these two spots we will also head to the central plaza of the village and get a birds eye view of Antigua below us.  Our next stop is the village of San Pedro de la Huertas. Here we park by the Plaza and visit a local jade shop.  At the factory we are shown the processes it takes to turn raw Jade rocks and convert them into fine jewelry.  A small shop is located at the factory where we can see a selection of finished products such as “Nahuales” made into necklaces, bracelets, and even keychains.  After a little bit of shopping, we hop on our ATVs and head to the next stop on the tour, the first capital city of Guatemala, which is called “Ciudad Vieja” or in English it would be the “Old City”.   We park by the central plaza and are able to walk over and visit the first cathedral built in Central America in the year 1534.  After a small walk in the plaza we arrive at the local market and while we are there we are shown how to make tortillas like the locals.  Once we finish at the market and taste our own tortillas we get on our vehicles and head over to San Antonio Aguas Calientes; in this village we visit a local and traditional textile museum and market where you can purchase local gifts,clothing, and textiles. This stop has some of the best views of the Fuego and Acatenango Volcano due to its vicinity to this small artisan town.  Our last stop is the food stop, in this tour we visit a local restaurant in the village of San Pedro El Panorama that serves guatemalan dishes.  When we arrive, we will be given a sample of a local dish called “Ceviche” and we are able to try their famous drinks called “Picositas”, Once finished with lunch we will head back to our office in Antigua.
